Adjacent Markets Applications

In addition to our broad portfolio of coating resins, additives and crosslinkers for powder and UV curable coatings, allnex offers specialty materials for rubber tires, composites and oil derivatives.

allnex has a broad range of technical resins including two co-reactant resins brands, ALNOVOL® and CYREZ®, specifically designed for the needs of the tire industry and rubber compounders. CYREZ resins are among the industry’s best known performance compounds used by tire producers as an adhesion promotion for steel cord or as crosslinker in various rubber applications.

We also draw on our deep tire industry expertise to provide ALNOVOL functionalized phenolic resins to the market, including select offerings which offer tire manufacturers an effective resorcinol or oil replacement for tire reinforcement adhesion systems.


Our unsaturated polyesters, gelcoats and color pastes are used in a variety of applications, including the manufacture of pools, in the sanitary market, and in the leisure boat industry.


Lubricants and oils also benefit from the specialty chemical expertise of allnex. Our silicone-free PC Defoamers reduce or prevent foam formation throughout the shelf-life of both petroleum-based and synthetic lubricants and oils. We are also developing specialty defoamers for bio-based lubricants and oils.
